  • Snowed under

    Snow and freezing rain continued to fall across Grant County on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

    Broken limbs, bent from the weight of the ice, were scattered on secondary roads.

    Many homes and businesses in Grant County were without power as outages were reported by Duke Energy and Owen Electric.

    Grant County Judge-Executive Darrell Link upgraded the county’s snow emergency to a Level Two Emergency for all roads within Grant County on Tuesday afternoon.

  • An accidental memory

    Growing up in Georgia, we were lucky to see real snow once every five years.

  • Spillman holds leadership roles for FFA

    Tyler Spillman has shown pride in being active in the Grant County Future Farmers of America. He is the vice president for the local chapter and has been part of the FFA since he started high school.

  • 30 years later - the team that would not be denied

    As the seconds ticked off the clock, the Grant County Braves turned to see their faithful fans unfurl a banner that said “Braves – Region Eight Champs.”

    Thirty years later, it’s a memory that has stuck with the players from the 1978-79 GCHS boys’ basketball team.

  • Our opinion - Thumbs down

    The snow is falling and forecasters are predicting ice to follow. The majority of Grant County residents only ventured out on Tuesday, Jan. 27 if they needed to get to work or had to be somewhere, but there were a few who decided to test their four-wheel drive vehicles on the roads.

    That’s just not smart, especially when a Level Two Snow Emergency has been declared. This type of emergency doesn’t mean the roads are closed, but it means that travel on them only if necessary.

  • Demons fall in 'All A'

    Believing that his team had a size advantage, coach Stacey May was dissapointed when the Williamstown Demons lost to Walton-Verona in the All “A” Tournament.

    “We didn’t really play bad, but we didn’t hit shots,” May said. “If we hit some of the shots we took, I’m talking about how well we played. This game, we didn’t play bad; we just missed shots. Walton was pretty consistent shooting the ball.”

  • Our opinion: Thumbs Up

    Time is running out for area homeowners to potentially have their home repaired and beautified for free.

    The unique opportunity is being offered by Kentucky Changers, an organization sponsored by the Kentucky Baptist Convention that uses seventh through 12th graders to refurbish exteriors of homes.

    For the first time, the project will come to Grant County from July 4-11 with support from the Crittenden Baptist Association.

    The deadline to apply for homeowners interested in having their homes is Jan. 31.

  • When a handshake will do

    My last living uncle considered himself a patriot of the American Constitution and voraciously a follower of the ideals of our early American leaders like Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Monroe.

    My last living uncle told me he was hoping to party one more time before he died. He partied when Joseph Goebbles died, he partied when Joseph Stalin died, he partied when Joseph McCarthy died and he was hoping Fox News was next. He said they should call it “Joseph News.”

    Why is all this important to the story I am about to weave?
